My motto is "servabo fidem"
Servabo fidem means I will keep the faith. My other motto is dum spiro spero - while I breathe, I hope.
I trust that anything is possible, so long as you are still breathing.
I have witnessed renaissance and healing.
I know love can be tender, generous, intimate and lusty.
And I think anything and anyone and anywhere can change. I am loyal to that.
I Believe In
We honor legitimate challenges, recognize true losses and address you with candor. Being real and honest in itself is healing and thwarts the invalidation of invisible illness.
We advocate learning and advancing, no matter what. We explore, examine and experiment. We marvel at new ideas and continual changes. We know learning takes time and a willingness to circle back to progress and evolve.
We believe wellness is not a destination but an ongoing excursion, whether you are sick or not, and that path includes time for creating joy, humor, wit and fun.
We aim to build a bridge between the peacefulness of Eastern culture and the poetry of Western culture. We appreciate that the joys and trials of the human condition transcend time and place.
We create resources that are concise, accessible and streamlined. All we design is mindful of the limitations of the mind when the body ails.
We value open minds that are scrappy and flexible. We admire people willing to venture despite adversity.
We promote the cultivation of a good and meaningful life, despite illness. We value a calm, sensitive, compassionate space as a critical part of wholeness.
If you ask me what I came to do in this world,
I, an artist, will answer you:
I am here to live out loud.
